Focuses on conducting "Storytelling Arts" programs with children 4 to 10 years old, and is suitable for educators, libraries, scouting groups, etc. Illustrated with b/w photorealistic line drawings, the puppet and mask projects in this book are all constructed using everyday materials in a big way. Paper plates, paper bags, cloth, and cardboard are transformed into large parade-oriented and theatrical puppets, including an elephant, a dragon, a lion, a giraffe, and even an "Overbearing Ogre." The chapter on "Scenery in Motion" shows how youngsters can participate as active scenery in plays, whether as a "Wandering Mountain," or a "Tumultuous Thundercloud," to name a few. This book is great for anyone working with children and theater, and would be very helpful to teachers directing a grade school play; but the seasoned puppeteer or storyteller would do well to look elsewhere.[Part One: "Am I Crazy to Do This?"] Intro) A Peek at the Possibilities 1) Getting Started[Part Two: Puppets and Masks] 2) Small to Medium-Size Puppets 3) Large Puppets 4) Simple Masks[Part Three: Setting the Stage] 5) What was that Blurry Thing? 6) Scenery in Motion 7) Stages for Storytelling 8) Sound Effects[Part Four: Opening Night] 9) On with the Show 10) Creating a Story from Scratch
